As confirmed by multiple sources, all ticket categories for the 2024 edition of the D23 Expo, officially titled the 2024 D23: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event, have been completely sold out. This year’s event offered various ticket options, each providing varying access levels to the festivities.

Attendees could opt for standalone access to the Anaheim Convention Center or choose ticket packages that included access to the Honda Center for the nightly keynote presentations. Options also included single-day passes and comprehensive 3-day tickets, catering to diverse preferences.

Moreover, the ticketing process featured two exclusive pre-sale opportunities. The initial pre-sale was reserved solely for D23 Gold Members, followed by a subsequent pre-sale day designated explicitly for guests making purchases with a Visa card, given Visa’s significant role as the presenting sponsor of the D23 Expo. Finally, any remaining ticket categories were made available for purchase to regular D23 members, including individuals enrolled in the free membership tier.
